Though the architectural masterpiece that is Téance can intimidate at first, this exceptional little shop in the heart of the charming 4th St. shopping area is worth a trip. On weekdays, the tea bar almost always has space and the tea makers have time to give you a really good introduction to any tea that you try. The quality of tea is excellent across the board, and if you're looking for conversation, there is a quiet community of regulars who frequent the shop. They don't serve food except for impeccable Mochi handmade by a Japanese chef for the weekends and tea infused truffles from a local chocolate maker, but the tea, the education, and the conversation make this little gem of a teashop worth a visit. They also offer tea classes many Friday nights and a rotating selection of events throughout the year. They have held Teen Tea Nights, new harvest parties, there is an ongoing informal Sunday writing workshop, and they are currently planning a series of board game nights.
